in terms of securing the scene, in bringing mr. zimmerman in. what kind of foundation does that set for the jury when they hear that basically the police was doing everything according to the books? >> i think it's important for the jurors to know that the investigation was done properly, that they secured the scene that, they looked for trayvon, mr. zimmerman and essentially secured the scene in such a way -- and they tried to make some assessment of the medical treatments. i thought they were fairly even handed in the manner in which they were doing it. they were not conducting a real investigation, so it only gives the foundation from the prosecutor's point of view as to what happened and what was taking place. it doesn't go to the real questions, though, about the questions and answers that took place with respect to mr. zimmerman. i think the question about the injuries that he had, for the prosecution, they need to show these injuries were, in fact, relatively minor and there is blood. blood counts a lot, but that doesn't then mean that they're significant in the sense they we

't like it or you don't think it's funny or it's inappropriate that you don't hold it against mr. zimmerman. you can hold it against me if you want. but i have your assurance you won't. here's how it goes. knock, knock. who's there? george zimmerman. george zimmerman who? all right. good. you're on the jury. nothing? that's funny. >> stephen: come on. that is some grade-a, light-hearted murder trial humor. i think this is a shrewd move by zimmerman's lawyer. america has a long history of murder humor. i mean, who can forget during the o.j. trial when johnnie cochran blew up that glove and put it over his head? "if the glove fit on my head, he didn't make her dead." you know it. i know it. he knows it. she knows it. and in "to kill a mockingbird," atticus finch knew that a little humor could health the hearts of even the most hardened racists. >> in the name of god, do your duty. nothing? i said duty. come on. that's funny. >> stephen: i always cry at that part. we'll be right back. >> welcome back, everybody. my guest tonight is a professor of american history at tufts. we're hon

not, could not, continue to trail and then confront martin as prosecutors allege. >> mr. zimmerman is sitting here on the phone with the police. >> so now we have two completely different stories, one in which trayvon martin was hunted, presumably because he was black and profiled by zimmerman. and another, zimmerman doing his neighborhood watch duty, disoriented and then jumped by trayvon martin. >> reporter: maybe most important for the defense? zimmerman is's injuries, which they say could only be done by the marks in a terrible beating. >> this is a case of a guy chased down by trayvon martin, and the defense says that didn't happen. >> the defense says that zimmerman himself was the victim. >> reporter: as part of the investigation, zimmerman reenacted the events with the police. >> all i could think was that when he was hitting my head, it would explode. i thought i would lose consciousness. >> reporter: the night in question, zimmerman was taken into custody, and he was let go. the police say there was no evidence to show his frame. his scalp was shown, cut and bleeding. but

-defense. >> you can't say it was mr. zimmerman or trayvon martin who was screaming for help? >> reporter: it's a key question still unanswered. the state has already called 15 witnesses to the stand. the defense is now estimating this entire trial will last about three weeks. reporting live in sanford, florida, i'm danielle leigh. >>> the senate has approved the most significant overhaul of the nation's immigration laws in a generation. and it did so with bipartisan support. the vote was met with chance of yes, we can inside the chamber as vice president biden announced the final results. 14 republicans joined all democrats and independents for a 68-32 vote in what's become an all too commonly polarized senate. the massive legislation cobbles together priorities from both sides. it includes a 13-year path to citizenship for some 11 million undocumented imp grants and a major boost in funding for border security. now the bill moves to the house where it faces great uncertainty. top republicans there have said they plan to write their own legislation. nbc news has learned james cartwright, the

or inappropriate, don't hold it against mr. zimmerman, hold it against me, but not mr. zimmerman. i have your assurance you won't. here is how it goes. knock knock. who's there. george zimmerman. george zimmerman who? all right, good. you're on the jury. nothing? that's funny. >> he did not leave it there, however. martin savidge was in the courtroom, joins us now. i don't know if i ever heard of a lawyer using a knock knock joke in opening statements in a murder trial. how did the jury react to that? we heard awkward laughter when he sort of said what, nothing? >> right. i didn't see one juror that laughed. there was one that seemed to smile, but i couldn't tell if that was humor or out of embarrassment. it clearly just fell flat in the room. it was only after that, i was going to say, don west got wind this didn't work. it went out on the twitter sphere really fast. immediately after lunch he came back and said i'm sorry, here, listen. >> no more bad jokes, i promise that. i'm convinced it was the delivery, though. i really thought that was funny. i'm sorry if i offended anyone about that.

. we want mr. zimmerman to have a nice, fair and just trial. >> we are going to have more on that coming up tonight. that's different than what he said last year. let's listen to that. >> right. >> another unarmed black boy whose life was lost because of unfounded stereo types, suspicions and theory. >> what do you make of that? >> i know what is happening here. the reason this case was galvanizing to begin with is because if anybody else besides a police officer shot somebody dead, you get arrested first, they ask questions later. anybody in the african-american community or a minority community understands that. there's obviously a kind of bubbling up of emotion because he didn't get arrested. they think it's because the kid is black. once he's arrested, the idea they now have a jury which is woefully deficient in having a minority present, the last thing anybody wants to do, if you are looking for a guilty verdict is inject race into it. if you do, it's injected all the way through the case. that is why you see the way people react today to this young ladies testimony.

into contact with mr. zimmerman that eveni evening, did he appear to be in shock? >> no. >> what do you base that on? >> he didn't act like anything different. he was coherent, he was responding to my questions just like any other person. >> very interesting. during his cross-examination, we also saw these pictures of zimmerman's bloody head and the witness testified that he saw blood dripping from zimmerman's nose. so what will the jurors make of all this? let's go live it investigative journalist diane diamond and martin savidge outside the courtroom? sanford, florida. we'rie going to continue keep a eye on the courtroom. was it a strategy by the state to put a witness on the stand who bolsters the defense's argument? >> well, i don't think that they wanted that to happen but i think that's what did happen. look, when you're in a courtroom, you kind of know what the other side is going to do, so i'm sure the prosecutor knew if i don't call john good, they're going to call john good so i might as well do it myself and get out in front of it. the problem is whether you compare john good to o

, this is all very subjective trying to put ourselves in the place of mr. zimmerman, but people getting beaten on the ground, a lot of people would be afraid more harm is going to come. i would be afraid being beaten on the ground like that and being pinned down. >> he talked about feeling like his head would explode and lose consciousness, would you be disoriented? maybe you can't say this. can you say whether or not you would be disoriented after receiving these kind of injuries? would you be thinking clearly or is it impossible to say? >> well, you get into a fight or flight mechanism. your nose is broken. your nose hurts. the back of your head hurts. you're being pinned down by someone so yeah, you're not thinking clearly and thinking is more going to happen? am i going to be beaten more. >> you looked at, i understand, the autopsy of trayvon martin. would you say his injuries are consistent with the story zimmerman is telling, that i shot up at martin or can you not tell? >> well, the projectile itself, the direction of it was straight up just to the left of the midline and penetrated the
